Motto Wines Backbone California Cabernet Sauvignon 2013


My Rating 81 Points.   
Price $14.

Deep Ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity on the nose with plums, cherries, currants, oak, cloves, vanilla, black pepper, pencil lead, green pepper, green vegetables, beef jerky and dirt.

Full-bodied with medium acidity and Long Legs.

Dry on the palate with cherries, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, oak, cloves, leather, currants, almonds and black pepper.

Medium finish with spices and bitter almonds and virtually no tannins.

A Simple yet Drinkable Cabernet. I Didn’t like the ending, though. Nothing special, but not offensive. I had their Zinfandel not too long ago, which was much better than this Cabernet.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
